"Share now?" You want some of everybody's gifts? :laugh:
Anyway, I haven't had "Christmas" yet; the family (2 brothers, a sister, and their families) won't be together until this weekend. I actually still have most of my shopping to do... watching the long return lines while in relatively short checkout lines. :laugh:
We, my fam, had our get together Sunday night, at my sisters.
My MIL gave DH and I our gifts Mon night, and she got hers Tues.
Tuesday we, my fam included, gathered at my MILs for dinner,
and the rest of the gift giving in DH's fam.
Changes from year to year, according to availability, moods, activities, ect.
We open at my husbands mom's usually on Christmas eve, but the last 2 years it has been a say or 2 before, then mom's, Christmas eve night unless shes coming to our house for Christmas day. At home we open only on Christmas day.
You got gifts???
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
I always get gifts. If they aren't wrapped or in a bag, I know that God has gifted wme with life and his son....and the rest is all extra!
Various days, thither and yon in three different states. Differs each year, generally determined by what day of the week Christmas falls on. This year I had the good fortune to have gifts to open every day since December 20th!
I must be doing sumpin' rong. No tree, no stockings, no gifts. Just me and my wife enjoying another day the Lord gave us.
And I had the pleasure of also enjoying a bunch more days the Lord gave me, with the added bonus of being surrounded by family and friends that I don't normally get to see except when we gather at the holidays. And since the loss of my husband last year, those "added bonuses" were blessings indeed!
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Even though we now have teens ... we go to Christmas Eve services, enjoy Noche Buena with friends and then go to sleep. Santa comes while everyone is sleeping and gifts are opened on Christmas Day.
Depends on the what the family is doing.
Two years ago, we had Christmas on December 10th because that is the only time my kids could all be home at the same time.
I have them in four states...Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, and Arkansas...I live in Illinois!
My mom doesn't care for the trees and stockings, and we weren't raised with it except years that people would give us trees. I do trees every now and then just because for me it is celebration.
